Feta and Tomato Creased Phyllo Cheese Pie (Patsavouropita) :)

This is the easiest Cheese Pie that anyone can make, even someone who is just starting out in the kitchen.  I had some left over phyllo in the freezer, which I completely forgot about and found it this morning. 🙂  Took me a while to figure out what to do with such limited ingredients, tomatoes, feta and phyllo,  but then I remembered a recipe my mom used to make with tomatoes and Feta cheese. 🙂  

There is always Feta Cheese in the refrigerator, (not original too expensive and hard to find,  but there is something quite similar to Feta Cheese). and a few tomatoes on hand. This pie actually has the taste of Pizza and Greek Cheese Pie (Tyropitta) combined…quite different taste but ohhh so yummy to eat. 

Ingredients:

1 package of Phyllo Sheets

1 kilo Feta Cheese

4 Tomatoes chopped into cubes

1 1/2 cup Milk

3 Eggs

4 tablespoons Semolina

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

Salt

Pepper

Oregano  (optional)

Preparation:

P1010165

Add eggs and salt into a bowl.

P1010168

Whisk eggs until light and fluffy.

P1010172

Add in the Semolina, baking soda and mix.

P1010174

Toss in the cheese, milk, pepper, oregano continue stirring the ingredients together. 

P1010176

Have the tomatoes cubed.

P1010177

In a oil brushed baking pan, take one phyllo sheet and crease it to one side of the pan, continue to do this for 6 phyllo sheets.

P1010179

Add in 1 tablespoon of Olive oil, add cheese mixture and top with tomatoes. Continue with the next 6 sheets of Phyllo by creasing each sheet one next to the other. Add cheese mix and top with tomatoes.

P1010180

Continue until you have finished with the last creashed phyllo sheets..drizzle olive oil and just a few drops of water.  Use a sharp knife to make a few small holes into the pie before popping it into a pre-heated oven. 

Bake at 180 degrees for 1 hour or until phyllo is golden brown.

  4. Looks delicious! Do you think it could turn out fine even by using puff pastry?

      Hi there, I guess you can but it won’t really have the same effect as it does with the Phyllo sheets. But if you try it with Puff pastry let me know how it worked out. 🙂
